I wish everyone peace as they are dealing with their grief. I lost my younger sister Lisa to neuroendocrine cancer on November 7, 2013. The anniversary is coming up soon and I dread that day. She was my best friend and we were to grow old together. I still write to her everyday to let her know what is going on in our lives. I too believe we will be together again.
To Melinda Candace Guinn, I feel your pain. This is only the second year. I lost my brother to lung cancer in 2008 in October. I still feel the pain, vividly at times. Especially this time of the year and his birthday is in December. You will always feel as if you are going through the first stages of grief at times. I am so sorry you lost your daughter shortly after your brother. It makes your grieving different because you lost them so close together. I am with you when you say we will be together soon.
Today marks the second year since my brother Doug has passed. He was only 54 yrs old. He and his wife have a daughter in college. She's going to be a doctor. I have three small pics right here on my desk, then an 8 X10 right here so I can look up at him easily. I replay his voice in my head.I have a pic on the wall with him holding his Les Paul bass. His daughter told me Doug's playing with John Lennon up in Heaven. I know he is! My daughter Candace, who passed less than two months after she turned 30, on 4/09/10, is rockin' with him! I miss them both SO VERY much!!! My Dougie passed from PHT. We WILL be reunited!
Dear Jamie Anne:
I too lost my brother, but to cancer. Your sense of loss must be overwhelming. I can't begin to imagine what you are going through, but, all I would say is . . . be kind to yourself. it was his choice & not your's
Lorraine Bruesch, I know it's hard not to blame yourself. It is not your fault. The pain is so strong when you lose a love one so suddenly and so young. My brother was 21 when he took his life 4years ago this coming may. I went through every emotion in the book and still do. You want answers, you want the pain to stop, your mad at god, your mad at the world. Please stay strong, be there for your family. You have this group or even reach out to me if you ever need to talk. -
I lost my sister last month to a drug overdose. She was diagnosed 3 years ago with bipolar, depression, and anxiety disorder. She would not take her medications, and fell into the self medicating hole. I suppose her pain and suffering was to great and her soul was to tired to go on, and she took a fatal dose of heroin. She was only 34 years old. I've never felt a pain like this before, my heart is crushed. I feel physical pain everyday, like chest pain every time she comes to mind. I feel like I'm in a fog and lost. I don't know what to do with myself or even how to move forward from here? When she started doing heroin she stole my identity and I decided for my children and I's safety and well being that it was better to distance ourselves from her. The last time we spoke she said that she hated me and that I was the worst sister in the world. Now that she's gone I'm filled with overwhelming regret. I don't know how I can ever forgive myself.......
